Re: Occasional Failed Recordings

Had also problems with a double tuner setup while retrieving EPG data over EIT, resulting in a constant high CPU load and some kind of card lockup (but still usable to record) I disabled it on both tuners which fixed the above mentioned problems, but I am stll getting EPG data which surprises me. An...

Re: Mythbuntu 16.04 Backend 29.1 CPU usage constantly about 18-30% [unsolved]

Strange thing...although I disabled EPG over EIT on booth cards EPG data is coming in, CPU load is low and so it's kind of solved ;- )

...but what is happening and why?

Re: Supported DVB-C tuner card with CI/card slot?

I am using a TechnoTrend USB TT-connect CT2-4650 CI, but without encryption so can't say anything about that.

Would be interesting how a developer would comment on that, if it is only a cosmetical issue.

Re: Mythbuntu 16.04 Backend 29.1 CPU usage constantly about 18-30%

Deleted video sources / channel list, rescanned only tv and dropped mpeg and some other strange channels which name / classification I can't renember. For now good, EPG data is coming and cpu load is back to normal. Some errors similar before this fix still occur but they seem irrelevant for the mai...

Re: Mythbuntu 16.04 Backend 29.1 CPU usage constantly about 18-30%

There is a problem with the EPG data over EIT. If I disable EIT on both tuners the never ending high CPU utilization stops. Not sure if there is a general problem or only for some channels. Addendum: Now I remember the difference to my first installation: This time I included radio stations. Disable...

Re: Mythbuntu 16.04 Backend 29.1 CPU usage constantly about 18-30%

Hello bill6502, thank you for the debugging instructions! I tried every encoder alone to see if there is a different outcome, but they are showing the same behavior. First everything ok and after a while problems begin. It is still possible to watch / record but when idle I got the described increas...

Re: Mythbuntu 16.04 Backend 29.1 CPU usage constantly about 18-30%

Thank you @bill6502! This helped to gather more information. Both consuming threads were DVBRead but without any action e.g. recording taking place (I have two different USB tuner). Will continue examining the logs as you suggested and check my configuration. Perhaps something got screwed up during ...

Hey Ted, thank you for you input! The Laptop came from a junk yard with broken TFT. It has Radeon graphic and surely a problem with it because some VRAMs are defective (crashed every time when I tried Windows + driver and dmesg on linux is giving me a radeon 0000:01:00.0: Fatal error during GPU init...

Mythbuntu 16.04 Backend 29.1 CPU usage constantly about 18-30% [solved]

and peaks to 70% without any job / recording / playing running. Checked with top. It is an AMD E-450 1,6Ghz dual core. Only mass storage is a 240GB SSD.

Anyone has some values to compare?
